I’ll consider demand for Kanu’s unconditional release – Buhari

Full Details Of Southeast Leaders’ Meeting With Buhari On Nnamdi Kanu’s Unconditional Release has Emerged


President Muhammadu Buhari has hinted that he will consider the demand for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to be released unconditionally.

Buhari made the remarks at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, where he was hosting a group of Southeast leaders under the banner of the Highly Respected Igbo Greats, which is led by First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation Chief Mbazulike Amaechi.

According to a statement by Mr. Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, the demand is a difficult one to meet, especially because the matter is already before the courts.

He explained to his visitors that his intervention would violate the doctrine of separation of powers between the Executive and the Judiciary because Kanu was already on trial.

“As the leader of this country, you’ve placed an extremely difficult demand on me. Your request has very serious implications.

“No one would say that in the six years since I became President, I have confronted or interfered with the work of the judiciary.”

“God has spared you and given you a clear head and a sharp memory at this age.” Many people half your age are already perplexed. However, the demand you made is substantial. I’ll think about it.

“I suggested that the best thing to do was to put him through the system.” Allow him to present his case in court rather than portraying the country in a negative light from the outside. Giving him that chance feels like a favour to me.”

The President expressed his condolences to Chief Amaechi, who had recently buried his wife, and prayed for her soul’s rest.

The nonagenarian had described the situation in the Southeast as “painful and pathetic,” lamenting that businesses have failed, education has deteriorated, and fear has spread throughout the region.

He pleaded for a political solution rather than a military one, claiming that if Kanu was released to him as the last remaining First Republic Minister, “he would no longer say the things he had been saying.”

“Not because I have anything to do with them (IPOB), but I am highly respected in Igbo land today,” he promised, “but I am highly respected in Igbo land today.”

Chief Amaechi said he had spoken with Nnamdi Kanu twice before, and the latter had rescinded orders on civil disobedience.

“I don’t want to leave this planet without peace returning to my country,” he concluded. I believe in a unified Nigeria that is a force in Africa. Mr. President, I want you to be remembered as someone who saw Nigeria on fire and put it out.”

Former Anambra Governor Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Methodist Church Bishop Sunday Onuoha, Chief Barrister Goddy Uwazurike, former President of the Igbo socio-cultural group Aka Ikenga, and Mr Tagbo Mbazulike Amaechi were among the visitors.
